Woah - Tornados in Connecticut????



Yesterday afternoon as I drove home, we had a terrific storm, with three areas of tornadic winds. Unheard of weather for CT! Yes, we get hurricanes, about every 20 years one howls up the coast and strafes Long Island before it grinds up the Connecticut River Valley. And we get snow storms that sometimes dump snow measured in ft rather than in. But, I've never heard of tornados here.

Oh, rest assured we didn't get damage of the magnitude of what tornado alley endures every spring. A barn was imploded, trees down over power wires, a couple towns without power. No big deal, really. I'm just wondering what's in store for us as the atmosphere warms up...

I remember hurricanes in CT, but never tornadoes. Happy that no one got injured. Take care ...

Those were one crazy line of storms yesterday. Here on Long Island, it looked like the end of the world there for a while. Glad you didn't get caught in the twister!
